The Mountadam site was selected by founder Adam Wynn for it's myriad of interesting meso climates and geological formations. The two vineyards from the Barossa floor at Greenock Creek and Nuriootpa have had a long association with Mountadam. They are both over forty years old, family owned and have always been hand tended. Fermented over the course of two or three weeks, juices are drained from skins daily and recombined to assist in extracting colour and flavour. Each component is vinified separately and assessed to create a wine which shows a balance of fruit and tannin, alcohol and length of flavour. Mountadam is aged for a year or more in a combination of new and prior use French oak barriques.
A deep red colour with vibrant purple tinges. The primary aromas are of cracked pepper and dark ripe plums with subtle spicy smokiness. Flavours are of cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla, tantalizingly sweet, creamy characters from the oak polishing out the spice, a firm tannin structure and persistent length of flavour.
